A $1.9 million bridge rehabilitation project, involving 5 bridges, is continuing, and work is scheduled to begin Monday on the Middle Fork of the Popo Agie River bridge in Lander.
The contractor is required to provide 2-way traffic, with 1 lane open in each direction, while working on the Lander bridge. The contractor’s schedule shows the Lander bridge work being completed by the end of June.
Work is continuing on the US20/WY789 Big Horn River Bridge (milepost 128.32), south of Thermopolis.
“By contract, work on the Big Horn River bridge and Middle Fork of the Popo Agie bridge is required to be complete before work can begin on the other 3 bridges,” said Wyoming Department of Transportation resident engineer Kaia Tharp of Thermopolis.
Including the US287 bridge over the Middle Fork of the Popo Agie River in the City of Lander, repairs are also scheduled on the WY432 bridge over the Upper Hanover Canal on South Flat Road (milepost 8.4), the WY31 bridge over Medicine Lodge Creek in Hyattville (milepost 21.89), and the WY37 bridge over Sidon Canal (milepost 246.66).
Prime contractor is Coldwater Group, Inc., of Pleasant View, Utah. The Wyoming Transportation Commission awarded the Utah contractor the 5-bridge rehabilitation project on April 19. Contract completion is Oct. 31, 2020.
